Savage shrimp used to be a food truck, but has now taken a brick and mortar spot in the Kukuiula shopping center.

I had read reviews of Savage Shrimp and they were pretty universally good so we decided to give it a go.

I had read about this place during my research for our trip to Kauai. All I can say is, WOW! Our family of four each ordered a different style of shrimp. They were all delicious! I chose the Bahia Shrimp. It was so delicious. This place is a must!!!

We were looking for an inexpensive, good meal near Poipu. My daughter found this great spot on Yelp and we were not disappointed! Try the shrimp tacos, coconut shrimp and shrimp scampi…all excellent!

Firerock shrimp was delicious. Lots of different choices. Get to go and take to the beach for a great picnic at sunset.

This was a highlight for us -- both for food and service. It was nothing fancy but the shrimp was cooked perfectly with crazy good sauces and the woman who served us was a delightful, local character.

Inside are 4 table and outside 2 or... More
